Summary Ethiopia is an ancient state with a new constitution and a new beginning. A new reality has emerged symbolized by, and reflected in, the constitution of 1994. A federal system of government has been installed and a democratic process is unfolding, propelling Ethiopia towards the mainstream of world civilization. The book explores Ethiopian history since ancient times from the constitutional perspective and provides startling insights into the traditional unwritten constitution of historical Ethiopia. It is with this background that the present and the future of the third largest nation in Africa is constitutionally examined.
